2 out of 5 eggs Work well when new, but check the reviews on how frequently they DIE!!! 12/23/2007

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced REDLINE 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000) with EPP Profile Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model 996525

Pros: Ran ok but HOT at 5-5-5-11 @ 2.25 Volts 1110 MHz in an Asus Crosshair with AMD 64 5400+ X2 @ 3050 MHz and two XFX nVidia 8800GTS cards @ 3150 MHz. After 5 months of that, I cleared the CMOS setup to run them at a lower voltage and speed so the system wouldn't crash during the winter months. In the summer, I had an air conditioner blowing on the well ventilated side of my Cooler Master Stacker case and I added an extra fan to blow right on the memory modules. I kept my system well cleaned though but after lowering the voltage, the system wouldn't post.

Cons: They don't last very long. Thank Mushkin for the lifetime warranty and get rid of them while you still can.

Other Thoughts: I went with Crucial Ballistix DDR2 SLI compatible 2GB kit. They run at lower voltage, much, much cooler and very good timings, plus they look really cool with the reg/green activity LEDs and the blue LEDs along the base. I have them running at 4-4-3-8 @ 960 MHz and have an observable performance increase due to the lower timings.

# Cas Latency: 4
# Features: with LEDs SLI-Ready
# Heat Spreader: Yes
# Timing: 4-4-4-12
# Model #: BL12864AL804
# Item #: N82E16820148092
